"There's a good bit of down time during the interview day. I wish I had brought a coat since it was pretty cold out." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I really don't understand why NYMC seems to get a bad rep. It's a solid school where you aren't in the middle of the madness of NYC, but if you want to grab a train, it's no problem. I'm about 95% sure this is where I'll be going in the fall (I got in), and am extremely happy for the opportunity. And this was the only interview I had where the "no stress" thing really applied. I walked into the interviewer's office with sweaty palms, and they were dry in minutes. He was a really amazing guy who put me at ease immediately, and we just talked about me, the school, my application, the world at large, etc. NYMC is an interview day you really can enjoy."
